It’s too easy to use and abuse the language of urban development

Politics fills itself with code language. We see it and will continue to see it in the current presidential campaign.

Are we an urban center, a bedroom community, a suburb, or something else?

What is Santa Clarita? A bedroom community? A suburb of Los Angeles? An urban center? I would argue that Santa Clarita is all of these things in part, and none of these things entirely.
